    任我再醜樣內涵亦美麗亦能推出公仔任智商偏低但從未虛偽我勝在無稽

    熱血的衰仔轉方法睇我一切就美麗大眾每一位懶得去講究身世鬥懶市夠爛至好睇甘於做勢

    看我身軀矮細心中卻多計性格相當高貴為世人墊底那個資質聰慧就更多問題愈笨拙我愈見得生鬼更多 更詳盡歌詞在※ Mojim.com 魔鏡歌詞網

    This is the greatest Chinese song I have heard in my entire life. Please tell me what it is about? This song saved me when I was depressed and about to commit suicide.

    Thanks.

    Just checking; do you need a translation of the lyrics, a translation of the text you posted, or...?

    I need a coherent translation of the lyrics.
    I tried google translate already and it didn't go over well.

    I'm curious. How did this song save you from your depression when you don't know what it's about? Is it the melody that touch you or there are one or two keywords inside the lyrics that save you?

    Obviously, the melody itself lol. I wouldn't be asking here if I understood.

    interesting song! the canto lingo is a bit too hip for me, so i'm not able to translate line by line, but the overall gist is this:

    title: passionate wastrel (so, that already gives you an idea of the content of the lyrics)

    me and my friends are a bunch of wastrels, bottom of the barrel scumbags
    despite my ugly appearance, i have inner beauty/substance
    at least i'm not fake

    if you look at me in a different light, i can appear beautiful
    in this competitive world, everyone fights dirty to be at the top
    (i'm) willing to be the underling

    i may be of short stature but i've got ideas/schemes
    i'm gracious and willing to take the fall
    the smart ones tend to have the most headaches
    my dumb appearance tends to make me seem flexible/adaptable

    too many "gold standards"--how can you make good comparisons
    if you look down on wastrels, you'd seem foolish

    i'm not a pretty doll
    to be a wastrel, you need to do it properly

    the gist of the rap section is that even wastrels are people.

    @caiyi did i do ok?
